We're using a three-wood; you can see, it's got about a fifteen degrees of loft on it. At the pro level the ball can be hit at 250 or 270. It can hit pretty far. Although, for the recreational player, the good local player and for the up and coming player; your goal should be to hit this club at about 210 to 230. You can tee off with this, if it's a narrow fairway, if it's a long par three or if you feel more comfortable getting a good tee shot with the three wood; you would use this club. I brought out our sand wedge here and the four iron. You can see how much longer the clubs are getting. The three wood is a very long club. You need to stand away from the ball, more considerably and you need to be reasonably tall. If your legs are too far apart; you won't get a good swing and if you're too close to the ball; you won't get a good swing. You'll want to get comfortably away from the ball. Once again, you want to draw a line from the target to the ball. Line up, placing your feet parallel to your line of the target, then relax and let the club do the work. That was a pretty good shot down the pipe. That's what you want to do with the three wood, just take a nice and easy, relaxed swing. The club will do the work.
